Good evening guys, as you’ll be aware by now, Legion is on the horizon and many Enchanters including myself are stocking up our banks full of Enchanting materials ready for the new Tome of Illusions coming in Legion. If you’re near an Auction House, go and check how high the materials have already sky rocketed to! all this is due to the high demand. Most old world Enchanting materials are already at least 100% above normal asking price and that’s all down to people like myself, buying them all up.
If you’re not aware of what Tome of Illusions are, please click here to read my previous post regarding them.
As prices have become so high, I’ve looked back at alternative means to acquire my materials and thankfully, the memory bank kicked in and I remembered a very good way to acquire Large Brilliant Shard. These shards are needed to craft the Tome of Illusions: Azeroth .
As I’m Horde, I’ve hearthed to Orgrimmar in search of the Legacy Armor Quartermaster – First Sergeant Hola’mahi, in The Hall of Legends [38.72] She sells the Sergeant’s Cape for 55 Honor points. It’s important, that you purchase the correct cloak. What we do is buy up as many of these cloaks that we can fit into our bags and disenchant them. Each cloak will disenchant into 1x Large Brilliant Shard.
As the PvP season is coming to an end, what better way to spend those Honor Points, before they get converted to gold. So don’t wait any longer… If you don’t have any intentions of crafting the Tome’s in Legion, but you have Honor Points to spend and a disenchanter, do the method above and simply post the Large Brilliant Shard on the Auction House and take advantage of those that will be desperate for them.
This is a very old method and well known among gold goblins, I hope you found this post helpful. As ever, leave any feedback you have, below!
As we all know by now, we have the Wardrobe system coming to Legion, bringing us the freedom to swap in and out collected armour and weapons alternatively called Transmog which we’ve collected on our travels. A new direction from the developers, is the introduction of the Tome of Illusions, which will work via the wardrobe system too, but will give us the freedom to add an appropriate enchant effect to our weapons and change it when we desire. You’ll know that we already have this opportunity for illusions already, via the Enchanter’s building in our Garrisons in Warlords of Draenor, sadly, these are not permanent, but those in Legion will be!
The Tome of Illusions will be created by Enchanters, using materials from the region that matches the illusion you desire. For instance, if you wanted the Tome of Northrend, you’d need to acquire the materials that would be gathered within Northrend or the Wrath of the Lich king expansion. I will add below, each Tome and the materials needed to craft each one.
If you want any advice, start buying up these materials from the Auction House NOW! People are clearing out banks, guild banks, ready to start preparing for Legion and that normally involves materials that people find are not wanted anymore. We need to take advantage of these cheap sales and stock these items up so we can get an early push once Legion is released.

In today’s guide, we’re going to be showing you how to Craft a White Bandit Mask so we can disenchant it for Vision Dust. This is known as the Vision Dust shuffle. A profession shuffle is crafting an item, to maximise materials from either disenchanting, prospecting it or by selling the craft to a vendor for a profit.
Professions needed: Tailoring (215) and Enchanting (125).
You will need a Tailor with the recipe, Pattern: White bandit Mask. This pattern has a very low drop rate, so you might be better off searching the Auction House for it. If you have time on your hands, and you wish to farm it instead, then feel free to click here to see where it drops.
The materials needed to craft 1x White Bandit Mask;
1x Bolt of Mageweave (4x Mageweave Cloth)
1x Heavy Silken Thread
Once you’re happy with the amount crafted, use your Enchanter to disenchant the masks. Here’s the following materials, you can gain from disenchanting 1x White Bandit Mask.
2-8x Vision Dust
1-4x Lesser Nether Essence
1-2x Small Radiant Shard
You can either sell the Vision Dust on the Auction House to make an instant profit, or use it for crafting, which will make a profit in the future.

Disclaimer: I do not take any credit for this guide, this is the work of UmrenTV which I was fortunate enough to come across via YouTube. I’m just sharing what seems to be an extremely good guide.
Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater shuffle. A profession shuffle is crafting an item, to maximise materials from either disenchanting, prospecting or by selling the craft to a vendor for a profit.
This is only available during Feast of Winter Veil.
If you have level 1 Enchanting and some starting gold, it appears you can make a lot of gold purchasing Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater which disenchants into either 1 Strange Dust or 1 Lesser Magic Essence. Just fill your bags with the sweaters and disenchant them and depending on your realms Auction House, you can make a lot of easy gold.
The sweater costs 22 copper and on average, 1 Strange Dust on my realm goes for 42 silver. So massive profits to be made.
